Abstract: This work aimed to isolate fungal strains from Brazilian fruits and select potential biocatalysts for the bioconversion of the monoterpenes citronellol, limonene, linalool, and geraniol. Among the 36 fungal strains isolated, 12 were capable to convert citronellol into rose oxide and its isomers, while the biotransformation of limonene led to the formation of 2 derivatives of high market value, carvone and alpha-terpineol. Furthermore, geraniol was converted into 2 new products and linalool into linalool oxide, ocimenol, geraniol, and also alpha-terpineol by using several strains. Accordingly, the microorganisms LB-2025, LB-2036, and LB-2038 were selected for further experiments and identified as Penicillium sp., Penicillium sp., and Aspergillus sp., respectively. Induction studies with substrates and products have been evaluated and the production of rose oxide was enhanced from 5- to 8-fold, while the products originated from the biotransformation of limonene have not changed. Thus, this work demonstrates the biotechnological production of new flavor compounds.
